Roulé 308

Lets talk about this guy for a second. You will not find a cooler producer in the world then the reclusive DJ Falcon. The guy has released just four other sides during the 8 years since this 12" was released, each of which contain some of the most perfect, wonderous, blissfull, anthemic house tracks off all time.

HOWEVER...as pointed out in this interview, sent in by Brendan (a friend of the blog), Falcon and his helmeted production partner will be dropping some new goodness on us in the near future. I expect goosebumps.

Also, having recently read his Discogs page, I found out that he's Alan "Braxe" Quéme's cousin, which makes that the coolest family i can think of. What a privilege it was to see them play together last month, its still pretty hard to believe.

Note: On Honeymoon (sweet, sweet Honeymoon), there is a wierd break that sounds like Blackberry interference, and then the track drops again in perfect sync, on the downbeat. I've had conflict in my head about whether this was intentional or an accident. It seems unlikely to have been accidental (cause why would it make it onto the wax if it was), and were there even Blackberries in 1999? But if its sopposed to be there, why? If anyone has any insight, please let me know.


EDIT:  From Reader "Justin"
That interferance sound is done on intention... or at least partly.  The story goes Thomas walked in with some radio-like device while Dj Falcon was working and this interferance made it into the recording. Falcon wanted to remove it, but Thomas liked it and insisted it stayed in the song... and well, the rest is history.  I'm not sure were I recalled this from. It might have been from an old Falcon interview. In any case it comes from the good old daft crew forum [sic] so I'm pretty sure this is how it happened.  

Without further ado...

YOOOOO!!
Thank you thank you THANK YOU!!!
I LOVE Roule, big just didn't have very many of these racks! So very cool you're posting them all up!

There's definitely a lesson to be found in this music and also how this scene blew up then fizzled out so quickly.

Anyway, we Blogged your noble efforts today:
